Broken Promises

Throughout the campaign Donald Trump made a number of promises which resulted in cheers from his supporters. Now that he has taken reign as our 45th President, we will track just how far these promises actually go. In no way do we want to see many of these promises come to being. Instead, as our name states, we are committed to bringing light to the many promises Donald Trump told on the campaign trail. This new, special feature of Crooks and Liars will do that bigly.
